Using the WebLogic JarBuilder Tool

The following sections provide information on creating the wlfullclient.jar using the JarBuilder tool:



Prior to this release, the weblogic.jar file could be bundled with a client application to provide WebLogic Server specific value added features, such as:

See Client Types and Features.

For WebLogic Server 10.0 and higher releases, client applications should use the wlfullclient.jar file to provide the WebLogic Server specific functionary previously provided in the weblogic.jar file. You can generate the wlfullclient.jar file for client applications using the JarBuilder tool. See Creating a wlfullclient.jar File for a Client Application.

Note: Continuing to use weblogic.jar may result in a ClassNotFoundException.


Creating a wlfullclient.jar File for a Client Application

Use the following steps to create a wlfullclient.jar file for a client application:

  1. Change directories to the server/lib directory.
  2. cd WL_HOME/server/lib
  3. Use the following command to create wlfullclient.jar in the server/lib directory:
  4. java -jar ../../../modules/com.bea.core.jarbuilder_X.X.X.X.jar

    where X.X.X.X is the version number of the jarbuilder module in the WL_HOME/server/lib directory. For example:

    java -jar ../../../modules/com.bea.core.jarbuilder_1.0.1.0.jar
  5. You can now copy and bundle the wlfullclient.jar with client applications.
  6. Add the wlfullclient.jar to the client application’s classpath.
